Have You Ever Wondered…

Number 1When and how Dizzy Pig got its start?

In 2000, two guys with a passion for BBQ met on the forum for the Big Green Egg ceramic smoker/grill – Chris Capell [aka Nature Boy] and Mike Kerslake [aka QFan].

Chris CapellThey were on a quest to create the perfect bite of food. Store bought rubs and generic spice blends did not impress. So they created their own blends using whole spices they ground themselves. The first five seasonings were released in 2003 to rave reviews, and Dizzy Pig became a trailblazer in the small-batch craft seasoning industry.

Mike KerslakeAlmost two decades later, Dizzy Pig has grown from a fond dream to a robust brand, with a reputation among celebrity chefs and foodies for innovation, quality, freshness, consistency, and flavor balance… and for just being down-to-earth good people!

Number 2What inspired the name “Dizzy Pig”?

The imagery of a roasting pig going around on a rotisserie created a name and mental picture so strong that it couldn’t be dismissed. In reality, the meaning is not so literal. Dizzy Pig just means fun to us now!

Number 3What do we hear most from our customers?

“I love your products. They make me look like a genius.”
“I cooked this great meal with Dizzy Pig that everyone loved. Now I wanna cook more.”

That’s why we love what we do!
